Barcelona planning audacious £55m swoop for Aguero

Barcelona are planning to launch an eye-watering £55 million bid for Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero, according to reports in the Catalan media cited by the Metro.

25-year-old Aguero is a beloved figure at the Etihad Stadium, due in no small part to his energetic performances and now infamous last-gasp winner against QPR on the last day of the 2011/12 season that secured City their maiden Premier League crown.

Although his form dipped somewhat as the Citizens laboured to a hugely disappointing finish under the hugely divisive figure of Roberto Mancini last season, the Argentine international has showed promising signs of recovery during the early stages of the current campaign and has so far notched four goals in six top-flight encounters - including a brace during the emphatic 4-1 demolition of fierce rivals Manchester United in September.

City could face a real struggle to hold on to their star man when the transfer window re-opens, however, with the Metro citing unnamed Catalan sources who suggest that Barcelona - currently topping La Liga after enjoying an encouraging start to life under Aguero's compatriot Gerardo Martino - are plotting to considerably test their resolve with a whopping £55 million offer in January.
